So far I’ve been ready to throw 2020 back and try for a better year, but there have been some bright notes. Among them: the next two books of the Chronicles of Alsea are coming, starting on July 31.
Alsea Rising is one epic tale divided into two parts (much like Without A Front) and wraps up the series. Yes, this is the end of the Chronicles of Alsea, but not of Alsea stories. I have not one but two new series percolating in my brain: a young adult set of six books, one book for each caste (and each featuring a new main character), and an adult series following the adventures of the Phoenix. I expect we’ll see familiar faces in both, but my plan is for standalone stories as opposed to maintaining sweeping arcs through multiple books.
Still, that is for later. The big news is now. Alsea Rising: Gathering Storm will be released July 31. It will conclude with Alsea Rising: The Seventh Star just two weeks later, on August 14.
I guarantee a barn-burner of a story and possibly some sleepless nights.
Just to whet the appetite, here is the back cover synopsis of Gathering Storm:
As Alsea’s space elevator nears completion, an unsettling rumor arrives: the Voloth are stirring once more.
Lancer Andira Tal has been preparing for this since the Battle of Alsea, determined that her people will never again pay such a price. She will use every weapon at her disposal—including her own bondmate.
In orbit, Captain Ekatya Serrado is fighting her own battle, reporting to a hostile admiral and under suspicion for her divine tyree bond. She dares not reveal that her bond is changing in ways even the Alseans could not foresee.
Amidst the mobilization for war, romance blossoms, familiar faces return, and a warrior’s honor is restored. Life and love will endure, even in a gathering storm.
Mark your calendars!
Je dirais même mieux : OUI! OUI! 🙂
How fabulous ❤️🌈😎 Thank you Fletcher!
Congratulations on lifting 2020 out of the pits for us.
And what a stunning cover design … can we pre-order on Amazon yet?
Not for a couple of weeks yet, but I’ll post when it’s ready. And, you’re welcome!
Totally agree with you….2020 doesn’t look bad any more. Thank you Fletcher!!
When will it be up on Amazon for (pre)ordering? I tried today, so I would get it as soon as it is available,, but it isn’t there yet.
Not for at least two weeks and possibly three, as I still have to finalize a few details before creating the product page. I’ll post the news here when it’s available!
Meanwhile over here I am re-reading the series so far….slowly. One chapter at a time!
Best news this year! Thank you.
This is great news, and perfect timing. I have only just recently read Uprising despite having bought it when first published! Question, I have been a bit behind the times and finally became aware of the updated Caphenon (brilliant) and wondered if the more recent version of WAF The Producer’s Challenge had additional content?
I’m glad you enjoyed the updated Caphenon! The new version of Without A Front: The Warrior’s Challenge did undergo a fresh edit, including adding a bit of new content, but I haven’t re-edited Producer’s Challenge. Yet…
Love the yet. So tantalising. I have the revamped Warrior and had noticed Producer on Amazon had a dif cover to mine and had wondered if I had missed out on anything else🙂
When will it be available for preorder in the Apple book store?
I just pre-ordered my copy of Alsea Rising on my Amazon Kindle… so it’s there.
Amisha, it’s in the Apple Store now.
Thanks for the heads up Annie. Got mine pre ordered too.
Already 3 chapters in! Brilliant
It’s been a whole day now…how many chapters? 😉
Thank you thank you thank you!
Both for an excellent read and for only making us wait two weeks for part two!
You’re welcome, on both counts!
